“We have all have lost or been in situations are we don’t know how to handle it," said Jason Perry. “It’s one thing we all need at the time is support. Hopefully this in some small way can show support to the family but also to the driver of the truck involved.”

The event is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27.

A convoy of vehicles will pass by Northern Lights Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, formerly EMMC, where Enoch has been since the accident. It'll end at Winterport Dragway.
